Three cars, a van and a B-Triple truck were involved in the horror accident, which left debris strewn across all four lanes of the freeway and closed the road for several hours.

The driver, a 26-year-old woman and a 29-year-old passenger were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

7NEWS understands the Prius was hit by a Holden Cruze as the cars headed west towards Port Adelaide, with the impact ramming the Prius and Cerato into the truck.

The driver of the Cruze reportedly drove on before retrieving a light pole, which ripped the rear axle out of her car.

She allegedly fled the scene before being arrested later.

The 38-year-old has since been charged with a range of offenses including causing death by dangerous driving, three counts of serious bodily harm caused by dangerous driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

Major Crash Detectives are continuing to investigate the accident and are asking anyone who saw it or has dashcam footage to contact police.
